An up and coming player in the tuning world, RFK Tuning GmbH, located in Waldfischbach-Burgalben have just completed their first Volkswagen-based project car, a Golf Mk 5 R32.

With 180 hp and 400 Nm of torque in showroom stock tune, the VW Amarok is not exactly underpowered. However, at DTE-Systems we knew from the beginning that there was more to come!
When you take into account that with full equipment like leather, heated seats, automatic climate control and so on, the Amarok can so easily pile on the pounds.
